  • Reichsautobahn Berlinka(478 clicks)
    After the end of the second world war, German lands such as the Pomeranian coast and southern East Prussia were given to Poland. Some finished and unfinished parts of the autobahns were now in Polish territory. This website aims to provide a detailed look at these old roads, some of which have been untouched in their original state to this day. The roads offer a unique look at the past and offer a trip back in time. I created this site because of my fascination for maps, roads highways and everything that is abandoned and while the autobahns share a history with the most horrific period of mankind, this site strictly focuses on these fascinating roads.
